Default IE8 Crashing ALOT

When I first got IE8 Beta it was pretty stable but lately it has been locking up on a regular basis, it wouldn't be anything specific that I would be doing also. Just navigating this forum causing my browser to stop responding. Anyone else experiencing these issues?


Yeah I know IE8 isn't the best browser but I like it, I am use to how it works and like alot of its standard functionality so please don't just say switch to firefox or any other browser..

I've never used IE8 so I can't say anything more than *cough* FIREFOX *cough*

Are you still on beta or did you upgrade to beta 2?

I'd agree it could be the flash plugin. Maybe try uninstall it or both and make sure you get beta 2 + flash 10. I'm using a combo of IE 8 beta 2 and chrome. (chrome for web and IE 8 to access my Outlook Exchange over Web) Overall IE has come a long way, it's leaner, faster and now a little more secure than Firefox thanks to private sessions.

Yeah, I am using Beta 2. I will try removing Flash 10 and going back to Flash 9.

Wonderful, they don't offer Flash 9 anymore.

Mine has been crashing quite a bit as well. I just figured I'd ride it out till it gets officially released tho.

I tried it for a few minutes and it crashed like crazy. It would always crash if I pasted an URL in the address field. So I did my self a favour and uninstalled it.
